One Wellshire Campaign Update: May 2018

One Wellshire Campaign in May

Our renovation project is well underway in our Sanctuary and Narthex. If you have not already pledged or given to the campaign, you received a mailing this week. Please prayerfully consider a two year (2018 and 2019) pledge to all this work. A pledge card was included in the mailing for you to complete and turn into the church by May 27. Please call or email Chuck Sparks with any questions.

If you have already made your commitment to the One Wellshire campaign, please continue to pray for the work that is to be done. These improvements will enable us to move the mission and ministry of Wellshire forward for many decades to come.
